Research 



111 this particular year of 1941, the 
demand for machinists has been tre- 
mendous, and New Bedford Textile 
School has been hard pressed to pro- 
duce machinists to fill the vacancies 
which are open at this moment. The 
shop has to turn out the spindles for 
the spinning of yarns such as seed 
hairs from plants of the genus Gos- 
sypium, the hair of animals, syn- 
thetic fibres such as nylon, vinyon, 
lanital, rayons, and numerous others. 

These yarns in turn fill the shut- 
tles which weave the cloth — cloth 
which is used by mankind as a pro- 
tection against weather, a protection 
which would be inconceivable in a 
world wholly independent of textiles. 

From the looms the cloth passes 
to the finishing department, which 
introduces the chemist. The chemist 
is usually found working over oddly 
shaped apparatus such as flasks, 
beakers, burettes, test-tubes, and the 
like. Analytical balances also play 
an important part in the analysis of 
chemicals. 

The microscope has made an im- 
portant niche for itself in the textile 
field. Here we can see an image 
magnified hundreds of times. We 
make use of this in the detection of 
fibres. 

These therefore are the tools which 
make New Bedford Textile School 
what it is today. Considering the 
three years which the class of 1941 
has spent at our alma mater, we are 
proud to present the fine record 
which the school has made to the 
outside world.

Theoretically and practically the New Bedford Textile School is at the top of 
the list. If academic subjects might be introduced here, there would be no better 
school of its kind to be found, as a B.S. degree would increase its popularity and 
student body. However, what there is to be found here is not to be looked down 
upon. 

|[ There have been, until a few years past, three main day curriculas ; namely, 
Cotton Manufacturing, Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing, and Mechanical Course. 
For the past few years the Rayon Course has been gaining in popularity and 
this year a Girls' Course was started which considerably enlarged the "coed" 
attendance. 

The Cotton Manufacturing Course acquaints the student with the manufacture 
of yarn and the subsequent weaving of cloth from this yarn. The first two years 
are spent in acquiring the foundation of cotton manufacturing and the allied 
subjects. The third year is spent in making and weaving originals. Some 
microscopy is also taught so as to give the students some knowledge in identifying 
fibres. Three years of designing and analysis are also included in this course. 

|f The Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course is excellent for anyone who 
wishes to adopt either or all of these for his vocation. The first two years include 
a basic training for Chemistry and Dyeing. The third year is more advanced and 
includes the Finishing of Fabric. Many practical subjects as machine shop 
practice, economics, microscopy, etc., are included in this course. 

The Mechanical Course is recommended for mechanically-minded individuals. 
It is a two year course consisting principally of machine shop practice, drafting 
and electricity. 

The Rayon Preparation Course recently incorporated in the school, gives com- 
plete instruction in Rayon Preparation and Analysis, Weaving and Original 
Patterns as well as designing and other interesting subjects. 

|f The new Girls' Course which is new to the school this year trains the girls to 
be laboratory technicians, designers, etc. The course is of two year duration. 

|f New machinery for the school is helpful to the student as it acquaints him with 
the newer methods of weaving, yarn preparation, etc. The chemical half of the 
school is in hopes that the laboratory will be renovated during the summer. This 
will be a great improvement and will facilitate the working conditions.

OlNCERITY in helping others, sincerity in talking 
with others, sincerity in laughing with others, these are 
some of the finest attributes a man may possess. To a 
man of these qualities, to a man who is never too busy 
to listen to the problems and ambitions of his students 
or too occupied to enjoy himself with these students, 
to John E. Foster the Class of 41 is happy to dedicate 
this issue of The Fabricator.

The Graduating Class of 1 94 1 takes this 
opportunity to pay tribute to our recently- 
retired professor and sincere friend, Fred 
E. Busby. He has faithfully served 
the students of this school for the past 
twenty-two years launching many prom- 
ising careers in the textile industry. He 
has been a counselor and benefactor. So, 
we, his last class, unite with our prede- 
cessors in thanking him for his services. 
We hope to prove our gratitude by being 
always a credit to his efforts.

CLASS OF 1942 



GENERAL 




LaRue Duckworth Perperas Dahl Coyne Hayman 

Donovan Wood Ortiz B. Cosio Tripp A. Cosio 



VENTURA and ANGEL COSIO - 
Better known as "Benny and Son- 
ny." Benny is a quiet fellow, while 
his brother tends to be a little more 
active. Since coming from Mexico, 
their English has improved im- 
mensely. You should hear some of 
the cute sayings they come out with. 

COYNE — John is one of the best- 
liked members of our class. He's 
smart as a whip and quite a soccer 
and baseball player. He is also 
known for his popularity amongst 
the girls in the school. 

DONOVAN— "Danny" has many in- 
teresting nicknames which fit him 
well. The most common and best 
fitting of these is "Lover." Danny 
is a fast basketball player and is 
liked by all the students. 

DUCKWORTH — "Norm" attends 
classes more regularly this year. 
Could it be that he comes so that he 
may gaze more frequently on one of 
our coed's charms ? 

HAYMAN— Better known as "Chris", 
We are all wondering why he goes 



around singing "I Can't Get Indi- 
ana Off My Mind." Could the boys 
put him in a tough spot. "Chris" 
really is a fine fellow. 

LaRUE — "Jack" is growing up to be 
quite a boy. He is on the basket- 
ball squad and is developing into a 
good player. Why don't you come 
to school more often, Paul ? We 
like to see you around. 

ORTIZ — Known as "Just plain Ed- 
die." He has found this year to be 
most interesting. You see, we have 
more young ladies enrolled this year 
than usual. He is an easy fellow to 
get along with, and can tell some 
very interesting stories. 

PERPERAS — Greece has many 
friends or should I say relatives at 
N.B.T.S. and one of the best is 
"Charlie." He plays a fast game of 
basketball also. 

WOOD — Warren has become greatly 
attached to the Mexicans as they are 
always seen together. "Woodie" is 
also seen with a certain miss. I 
wonder who she is?

CHEMISTRY 



CLASS OF 1942 



CACELLA — Arthur couldn't be called 
tall, but he is dark and handsome. He's 
rather quiet and studious but he has a 
wit that pops up when least expected. 

GREGORY— Warren has what it takes 
to be a success but he'll prove it him- 
self in New York this summer. 

HILTON — Johnny can get into more 
mixups than any ten people put to- 
gether. What he needs is someone to 
look after him. All fooling aside he 
knows his stuff when it comes to 
chemistry. 

HUGHES— "A friend in need is a friend 
indeed." This saying fits Johnny in 
more ways than one. 

LEHMAN — Among his many accom- 
plishments are basketball and dyeing. 
We are willing to bet he'll go far in 
the industries. 

MARCELLINO— Bill is rather an unas- 
suming chap but it is said that "still 
water runs deep." 

MOGILNICKI— Gene has everything and 
that's an understatement. He'd go out 
for every sport in school if he had 
time. In spite of athletics he is never 
afraid to show his report card to any- 
one. 

MEUNIER — A commuter from Taunton. 
Rain, snow, sleet, etc. have little effect 
on Ed. What (or should we say who) 
detains you at times ? 

MONIZ — This chap doesn't say much 
but that doesn't mean he doesn't get 



around. His lessons are above par 
even tho' lectures go by without a note 
taken. 
OHM — Herky is tall, blond, good look- 
ing and a disposition that will be an 
asset in whatever he attempts. 

OWEN — Charlie has become somewhat 
quiet since last year. Even now Char- 
lie has that "gleam in his eye." 

PEARSON — Sometimes we wonder why 
Donald comes to school. Seems he'd 
be a better broker or M. C. 

PHANEUF — The sound of breaking 
glass will usually tell when Jean is 
around. Would we be amiss if we 
called him "Little Corporal"? 

REMILLARD— Not a bad guy when you 
get to know him. And girls, you have 
to admit he is handsome. Too bad Emil 
was absent when the picture was 
taken, he might have given someone a 
thrill. 

SCOTT— Scotty has that military air 
about him. The world would never 
suffer with more men like him. 

SENESAC— "Devil may care" is the only 
way to express him. He does his work 
but not even he can vouch for the re- 
sults. 

WOBECKY— Buddy, as his friends call 
him, has proven himself a tennis play- 
er. We know he is an excellent stud- 
ent and now we are wondering what 
else he can do.

Counsell Mulvey Whelpley Allain Letendre Cote Tanquay 

Cartmell Walder Tinkham Irvin Andrews Mellor 



ANDREWS— Ray is one of those 
fun-loving boys who can match wits 
with the best of them. 

ALLAIN --Mr. Gourley's hope for 
next year's baseball team, Jerry is 
also a good worker in school. 

COTE — Here is a quiet lad ; we won- 
der what he thinks about. 

COUNSELL— Well-liked among his 
class-mates, Alden hopes to be a 
draftsman. 

CURRY — Always playing tricks ; oc- 
casionally he manages to get a little 
work done. 

IRVIN — "Little Oiwin" is another 
mechanical marvel who manages to 
look busy at the right time. 

LETENDRE — This lad is quite a 
hunter as well as a machinist. 



MELLOR — Don's carefree manner 
produced unexpected results during 
the basketball season. 

MULVEY— Tom would be an athlete 
if he could. May be what the soc- 
cer team needs — for a water boy. 

TANQUAY— This boy is so busy at 
his work that he scarcely finds time 
to meet his classmates. 

TINKHAM— "Tink" is easy to get 
along with and is a great help 
around the shop. 

WALDER — Bernard's eccentricities 
make him an interesting companion 
in any field. 

WHELPLEY — Johnny is tops in 
studies and has a great many friends 
in school.

CLASS OF 1942 GIRLS' SPECIAL CLASS 



Never before in the history of New 
Bedford Textile School have there 
been so main' eoeds. The following 
data may somewhat enlighten the 
reader as to their respective natures. 

BEVERLY THERRIEN— Even in a 
elass of girls there is someone with 
a ready wit and sense of humor. Or 
to quote Shakespeare, "Beverly is 
the soul of wit." 

EILEEN CARROLL --We haven't 
made up our minds whether Eileen 
came to Textile because of her in- 
terest in fabrics or a certain soccer 
player. 

LILLIAN MAYE— "Lil," secretary 
of her class, is a very popular young 
lady among both boys and girls. 

LUCY ELDREDGE— "Sunny" hails 
from across the river. She has red 
hair, but we can't see that her tem- 
per is in any way affected by it. 

ELLEN BESSE— Another Fairhav- 
enite and the class athlete as well. 
Ellen goes in for sports in a big way 
and usually comes out on top. 

WANDA SIECZKOWSKA-Wanda 
says little, and would hardly be no- 
ticed at all except for her very 
pleasant appearance. 



BARBARA MANCHESTER— Bar- 
bara is the Big City gal. She's from 
"plain old Brooklyn." A grand dis- 
position makes her a favorite with 
all, including a certain senior chem- 
ist. 

ANNE ATCHISON— Anne is rather 
quiet but she doesn't miss much. 
She is good fun and is well-liked by 
her classmates. 

FAITH BROADMEADOW— Petite 
is the word to describe Faith, al- 
though she probably has a better 
name for it. Snappy on repartee, 
Faith can pin anyone's ears back 
with her remarks. 

ROSALYN GOLDSTEIN-We have 
heard that "Dolly" is an actress. 
She is an able scholar as well, as 
her marks indicate. 

EUDORA CARVALHO — The so- 
phisticated member of the class. 
Poise and charms are to be learned 
from "Dora", if the other girls only 
had the patience. 

MARIE HEALY - Another miss 
who comes under the heading of 
"popular." Her easy going disposi- 
tion and ready smile are responsible 
for this. Marie is treasurer of her 
class.

MENDOZA - - Henry is popularly 
known as the ''mad chemist" among 
his classmates. He hails from 
Dighton which we have been trying 
to find on the map for years. 

ODIORNE— This long and lanky fel- 
low hails from across the river. If he 
is a sample of what to expect from 
his town, not bad. 

O'LEARY— Hails from Newton, but 
he's becoming acquainted with New- 
Bedford or is it vice versa? 

PEREZ — The "Casanova" from Latin 
America. He claims to be a woman- 
hater but he keeps contradicting 
himself. 

WOOD — Here is a tall likeable chap 
who has become quite a basketball 
enthusiast since entering N.B.T.S. 



CARTER— What a man ! Works all 
night and then comes to school the 
next day fresh as a cucumber, and 
receives the highest grades in his 
class. We wonder if his wife ever 
sees him. 

KESSEL — Would someone please put 
this boy in the "know" about these 
New Bedford gals. 

LEMIRE — Nose to the grindstone 
during school hours, but he believes 
that all work and no play makes 
"Ronny" a dull boy. 

MENDELL — Carlton's classmates 
have begun to believe that it is im- 
possible for him to get to school at 
8:30 A. M.

CLASS OF 1943 



Any resemblance of this class to any 
other, past, present, or future, is purely 
coincidental, and has no reference to any 
persons living or dead. 

In future years you will find that we 
so called "lame brains" of today will be 
the accomplished industrialists of tomor- 
row. 

BEAN — Silent and sly, but full of erup- 
tions — and we don't mean acne. 

CHASE — Between the milk route and 
mobsterism he has little time for sci- 
entific metriculation. 

CORRIGAN — The finery that elected 
him class president is undermined — 
his Packard — his girl — and greater 

things. 

DUTRA— The joker of the pack (a 
card), always getting shuffled around. 

ENTWISTLE— Procrastination and two 
women constitute Bill's daily grind. 

FUSCO — His rustic sense of humor and 
a fixation that "Crime Does Not Pay" 
will insure his success as a Plumber. 

HATHAWAY— The friend of all — al- 
ways a spare minute — and see's Ent- 
wistle for locker space. 

HOUGHTON— "A diller a dollar, a ten 
o'clock scholar" — or as a famous edu- 
cator says, "Car trouble." 



LAYCOCK — Joseph John is a strong 
backer for his success as a chemist. 
Attention C. P. and all Honor System 
followers. 

MATHER — A true consulting chemist 
and thus voluntarily in charge of "Ad- 
vice to the Love Lorn." 

MANCHESTER — "Pretty Boy" gets 
along very well — we wonder if mob- 
sterism has anything to do with his 
studies. 

MEE — Happiest when sitting in Browne's 
listening to the strains of McNamara's 
Band. How about homework, Bill? 

MALICK, DONALD— An ungodly laugh 
does not herald the entrance of Frank- 
enstein, but of Mr. Hyde. 

MALICK, J.— The Dr. Jekyll of the Ma- 
lick combination. You're all right, 
Jake. 

NICHOLSON— Every class has its prob- 
lem child. Ah, sweet mystery of life. 

PINAULT— At last we have found the 
kind of Ruffy (I'll Moider de Bum) 
Balonki. — Consult J. Palooka. 

SEDERHOLM— We wonder if "Legs" 
will ever catch up to that other nick- 
name of "See-Da-Point". 

WALDER — The ardent accomplice of the 
"Jekyll and Hyde" duet. 

WHALLEY— "Do you like me for my- 
self alone, or for my fine clothes."

EXTRA CURRICULAR 



HISTORY OF THE 



The second Monday in September, 1938. Not an unusual day to 
most people, but to those entering Textile School it was eagerly 
awaited and nervously attended. On this particular day, many fine 
young men and a solitary young lady entered the portals of this 
school, looking forward to being graduated three years hence, 
although that day of graduation seemed eons away. Now that it is 
here, however, the past three years appear infinitessimal. Let us look 
back on these years and reminisce : 

In October, 1938, the first class officers were chosen: Edward 
Wood, Earl Patnaude, Wilbur Delano, and Barbara Hathaway were 
president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively. Dur- 
ing this month several of the students accepted invitations to join 
fraternities and endured the subsequent hazing ordeal like men. One 
or two of our classmates found positions in other fields and were 
removed from the annals of our class. The obstacles of mid-year 
exams were surmounted, and preparations for the second term began. 
This term flew quickly by, and finals were disposed of. 

Our second year began without much fear and trepidation. New 
officers were chosen: Andy Goodwin, Earl Patnaude, Barbara Hath- 
away, and Ray Sumner were named president, vice-president, secre- 
tary, and treasurer, respectively. Fraternities selected more of our 
members, and Miss Hathaway became a mere 50% of our feminine 
contingent when Winifred Pardey enrolled with the class. Extra- 
curricular activities were indulged in by the more athletic members 
of the class. Midyears . . . Finals . . . Vacation. 

September 1940. The first two years sped by so fast that it did 
not seem possible that all the work to be done could be finished in 
one short year. The election of class officers was probably looked 
into more carefully than in previous years to insure good leadership. 
Norm Hilditch was elected president; Earl Patnaude served his third 
consecutive year as vice-president ; Ray Sumner was re-elected treas- 
urer: Fran Frey was named secretary. Ralph Hawes was named 
Editor-in-Chief of the Fabricator, in which capacity he has served 
well, being ably assisted by a hard-working staff. 

In October of this year, Mr. Edward Murphy left the faculty, 
the vacancy which resulted being adequately filled by Mr. Richard 
Barry.

CLASS OF 1941 



Once again tempus fugited and midyears were upon us before 
we realized it . Then preparations for graduation began. Committees 
for rings, prom and banquet, and so forth, were named; the Fabrica- 
tor was edited, class pictures were taken and individual pictures were 
exchanged, and the eventful day of June 6th was coming nearer and 
nearer. 

The seniors played their final games for Textile in the field of 
athletics. Those missed from the basketball squad next year will be 
Hawes, Ivuwaski, Goodwin, Hilditch, Dabrowski, Barter, and Mgr. 
Sumner. Soccer will have to rind men to replace such stalwarts as 
Captain Bob YVhewell, Hilditch, and Sagar. The baseball team will 
be faced with the loss of Goodwin, Ferdinand, Frey, Hilditch, and 
others, while tennis and golf lose key men. 

In April of this final year, Mr. Fred Busby, head of the chemis- 
try department, retired, and his successor Mr. Francis Tripp will 
have a difficult time filling the shoes of a man who had the respect 
and admiration of the entire student body. 

The Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity National Convention was held 
in New Bedford this year, and a dance was given at the school in 
honor of the Kappa boys from Philadelphia and Lowell. New friends 
were made, and the visitors went home feeling that the trip up here 
had not been in vain. 

The crowning social event of the three years was of course the 
prom and banquet, which was held at Charlie's Diner in East Provi- 
dence. Here was an event long to be remembered when other mem- 
ories have been forgotten. 

Graduation, at long last. Caps and gowns lent dignity to the 
climax of our three years of toil and fun. As we received our 
diplomas various thoughts ran through our minds — of time wasted, 
of jobs we hoped to get, and of the work we wish to accomplish on 
this sphere of life. 

As we stood for the last time as a group, bidding a last goodbye 
to many who have been good friends and to the school whose teachers 
have been friends as well as instructors, it was difficult to realize that 
these three years of pleasure and instruction had come to an end, 
three years in which we have come to learn that "Nothing is worth 
doing unless it is done well."

Treasurer - Edward L. Murphy, Jr. 

To every member of the class of 1941, the Alumni Association extends its very best 
wishes for good health, happiness and success during the all-important years of life which 
are about to begin. 

The present sorrowful, uncertain conditions throughout the world have necessitated a 
wide increase in industrial production. Our textile business is now in need of many men with 
technical training such as you graduates of 1941 have upon leaving school. Find your proper 
place as soon as possible, use your education in every possible way, and do your best at all 
times to uplift yourself and your school. Those of you who will be called into military train- 
ing, accept your temporary detour in the light of educational experience. Each of you who 
are called will have an ideal opportunity to benefit your life by learning self-dependence and 
by building self -character. 

The Alumni Association is at the present time in a very healthy condition. In the past 
few years there has been continual, progressive advancement. Many notable accomplishments 
have been worked out. Many more are in the stage of development. The Association officers 
are ever willing to lead in Alumni affairs, but require each member's co-operation and assist- 
ance in any manner in which they are called upon to do their share. 

A sincere loss to the Association occurred early in the school year through the resigna- 
tion from the faculty of Edward L. Murphy, Jr. We know "Red" hated to leave us as much as 
we hated to see him go from the school. He was an anxious and willing leader. His resigna- 
tion from the teaching staff took him away from the "home office" but he has continued his 
good work and sincere interest in the Alumni Association. Mr. Murphy has definitely set up 
plans for creating an Alumni Chapter in Boston. There are many graduates of New Bedford 
Textile School in the area of Greater Boston. Undoubtedly they would become more active 
in Alumni activities with their own local Chapter operating. We look for Mr. Murphy to 
develop something good. Any graduate of the class of 1941 locating in or around Boston will 
find it beneficial to contact Edward L. Murphy, Jr. at the office of Brown-Durrell Co., Essex 
and Kingston Streets, Boston, Mass. 

Other plans for broadening Alumni activity include the possibility of the formation of a 
Chapter at Philadelphia. Several members from that district have signified a desire to form 
an Alumni group. It is well worth the effort extended by all concerned to have an Active 
Chapter. The boys in Philadelphia will find dividends will result from their investment of 
interest in the Association. 

An affair during the past year, although one of a regretful nature because of its pur- 
pose, brought to-gether many members of the Association. This affair was the tendering of 
a testimonial dinner to Mr. Fred E. Busby, in recognition of his many years of devotion and 
sincere service to the school, at the time of his retirement from the position as Head of the 
Chemistry, Dyeing, and Finishing Department. Appropriate remarks for the occasion were 
officially expressed by our president, Eliot Borden. The Alumni members present, in addition 
to having the pleasure of assisting in the honor paid to Mr. Busby, found the occasion oppor- 
tune for re-union with many school friends. 

The New York Alumni Chapter continues its activity. This Chapter has for many 
years held monthly dinner meetings at which a large number of members gather each month. 
Just recently, the New York group announced the establishment of the Everett H. Hinckley 
Memorial Scholarship to be given yearly to a student at the school. This award by the New 
York Chapter marks another step forward by the members of that Chapter in their desire to 
be of material benefit to the School. The scholarship is in honor of the late Mr. Hinckley in 
recognition of his interest in the development of the Dyeing and Finishing Department at the 
School. 

The present officers of the New York Chapter are: President, Gordon Smith, Seneca 
Textiles, 91 Franklin St., New York City; Vice-President, James Hollis, Schener and Co., 72 
Leonard St., New York City; Secretary, Stasia Strauhawski, Clarence S. Brown Co., New York 
City; Treasurer, James McLoughlin, Seneca Textiles, 91 Franklin St., New York City. 

At the closing of this school year, the Alumni again will publish its newspaper. Each 
member of the graduating class will receive a copy of this publication. The Annual Meeting 
and Clambake will, as is the custom, take place the day following graduation. It is our earnest 
hope that every member of the class of 1941 will be present at this affair and officially 
become members of the Alumni Association.

ACTIVITIES 1940-41 

Delta Chapter started the season's activities by holding open house at 
East Wareham on October 15th. Of the twenty-two prospects gathered there, 
fourteen desired admittance to our Brotherhood. The pledges received the first 
degree during the initiation week held in early November. The event was suc- 
cessful from all viewpoints. 

In November the annual football classic between the DK's and Phi Psi 
was staged. Phi Psi emerged the winner by a 13-0 score avenging last year's 
setback. The rivalry continued on the basketball court where the Delta Kappa's 
handed Phi Psi a 14-13 setback. The scoring punch was furnished by Johnny 
Hughes, while Ray Sumner excelled on the defense. The second encounter 
resembled a German Schrechlichkeit with Phi Psi on top by a 14-11 count. 

Delta Chapter acted as host to the National Convention which was held 
in New Bedford April 25-26. The principal business was the selection of a 
Supreme Council, composed of members from the local Alumni Chapter. The 
school dance on the 25th and the stag banquet at the New Bedford Hotel on the 
26th highlighted the entertainment of the convention. The affair left many fond 
memories and was, by far, the outstanding event of the year.

ACTIVITIES 1940-41 

During a conservative 1940-41 season there were twelve new members added 
to the active chapter. Following the usual hilarious initiation a ritualistic third 
degree followed by a banquet was held at the Miles Standish Hotel in Boston. 
The formal and highly social event was enjoyed by many active and alumni 
members from Beta chapter. 

In football, Phi Psi emerged victorious over rival Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity. 
Later in the year, using the same spirit and tact, Phi Psi divided honors with its 
rival on the basketball court. 

This year it was the chapter's privilege to extend honorary membership to 
two men : Richard O. Barry, member of the faculty, and Charles Noon, Director 
of Dyeing at Mt. Hope Finishing Company. 

The annual Phi Psi Convention was arranged by the Providence Alumni 
chapter and held at the Biltmore Hotel in Providence, May 16 and 17. In the 
foyer of the hotel, the active chapters had a competitive exhibit of school accom- 
plishments. 

At the conclusion of the school semester a Farewell Banquet and dance was 
enjoyed by all.

The first event of the fraternal year was a joint smoker of Beta and Gamma 
Chapters on October 18 at New Bedford Hotel. Samuel Walder, Burton Seder- 
holm, and Bernard Walder of New Bedford Textile School and Paul Gollis of 
Durfee Textile School were accepted as members of Beta Chapter. The formal 
induction took place at the annual Banquet and Dance in the Blue Room of the 
New Bedford Hotel. 

The annual convention took place in New York in April. This was the 
most colorful event of the year. 

A trip to Boston, and a theatre party there, wound up the fraternal affairs 
for the year. 

Beta will lose two men this year, but a larger and more active chapter is 
expected next year.

During- a party at Betty's home, Kuwaski switched the lights off and Hawes 
was heard to say, "Well, what do w^e do now?" 



Don't worry if your job is small 
And your rewards are few ; 
Remember that the mighty oak 
Was once a nut like you. 



Mr. Brooks : "Mr. Stetson, who invented an explosive, was once a pupil of mine 
in this very room." 

Freshman : "I suppose that spot on the ceiling is his explosive." 

Mr. Brooks : "No, that is Stetson." 



My ! does this world change. Why I can remember when my baby daughter 
loved dolls all painted up, and my son was mad about soldiers. But now, my son 
chases around after the painted dolls and my daughter is mad about the soldiers. 



Methinks that I shall never see a hazard rougher than a tree — 

A tree o'er which my ball must fly if on the green it is to lie. 

A tree which stands that green to guard. 

And makes the shot extremely hard ; 

A tree whose leafy arms extend 

To kill the mashie shot I send ; 

A tree that stands in silence there, 

While angry golfers rave and swear. 

Niblicks were made for fools like me, 

Who cannot ever miss a tree. 



Mr. Murphy: "Will this suit hold its shape?" 
Salesman : "Absolutely, that suit is made of pure virgin wool." 
Mr. Murphy : "I don't care about the morals of the sheep. Will it hold its 
shape ?" 



Is it true that Mr. Brooks caught the senior chemistry class working one day ? 



St. Pierre : "Everytime I see that fellow he is smoking the stub of a cigar, 
Ferdinand: "Oh, that's a little habit he has picked up here and there." 



Sumner: "Waiter, give me some ginger ale." 

Waiter: "Pale?" 

Sumner : "No, a glass will be enough." 



Hilditch : (Athlete?) "How high is my temperature. Doc?" 

Doctor: "About 101." 

Hilditch: "What's the world's record?"

Dabrowski : "I saved a car check today by running to school behind a trolley." 
Armitage : "Well, why didn't you save a quarter by running behind a taxi." 



"Look, Mother, there is a wolf in our back yard." 
"Hush, child, that is a Textile student." 



Prof. Busby : "Counsell, how many times have I told you to get to class on 
time?" 

Counsell: "I don't remember, I thought you were keeping tabs." 



"Your teeth are like the stars," he said, 
And pressed her hand so tight. 
He spoke the truth for like the stars 
Her teeth came out at night. 



The laugh of the year was when Jimmy Cairns came into the small lab. and 
said, "I squirted the whole first year class with a rat." We found out later that 
he got one person with a drop of H 2 from a rat which was two inches long. 



The only time the third year chemistry class ever works is Tuesday afternoon 
from 1 to 2:30. Their economics is due at 2:35. 



The boys get angry when Mr. Barry breaks up a crap game by taking the 
dice away. 



In Electricity, the 1941 class broke records with their marks. We will not 
discuss whether they were high or low. 



PEEKING THRU THE KEYHOLE FROM THE INSIDE 

Where did Long get the name "Rosebud"? 

Where does Alden soil all those handkerchiefs ? 

Did Steiner get his fifty cents back? 

Who caused the "fish" commotion? 

What is John Barter's approach to Mr. Walker's office? 

Where does Touchette get all his ideas? 

Why does St. Pierre insist on always rolling on his stomach?

Textile, after a wobbly start, gave a 
good account of itself on the diamond 
last year. The boys dropped a 15-4 
decision to Lowell in the opener, chief- 
ly due to the bad weather and the 
equally bad miscues of the infield. The 
boys took the count again in a slugfest 
at Quincy, the Fore River team get- 
ting plenty of batting practice to win, 
36-11. 

Tech had to come from behind to 
get its first win of the year, 9-8, at the 
expense of Wentworth Institute, with 
Jean Senesac hitting his stride and 
pitching a seven-hit ball game. 



In their first home game, the locals 
dropped one to its city rivals in a com- 
edy of errors, 18-3. Most of the scor- 
ing was done in the early innings at 
the expense of Johnny Coyne. Poitras, 
who relieved him, turned in a credit- 
able performance for the rest of the 
distance. 

Tech evened things with Lowell, 
nipping the Weavers in a close game, 
5-4. Senesac, who pitched well, won 
his own contest in the late innings, 
knocking in the tying and winning 
runs. 

Armand Poitras twirled well against 
Becker, but lost 3-0 as the boys failed 
to hit in back of him. Senesac fol- 
lowed with a win over Durfee Textile, 
11-5, getting good hitting and fine sup- 
port. 

Fore River and Durfee Textile took 
the two remaining games from the 
locals on Tech's home grounds, 9-5 
and 3-2 respectively. Both games were 
well played and the breaks decided the 
issue in each case.

Frey to win in doubles and account 
for Tech's two points. After white- 
washing Dean in an abbreviated con- 
test and winning handily from Paw- 
tucket, Textile's racquet wielders 
might well have called it a day. They 
fought hard against a superior M.I.T.

Salle won again, leaving the boys from 
The competition was keen on the New Bedford with two wins and five

fielded a well-balanced team in the ception of Tripp, returns to the fold 

opener and took the match in stride, next season, and should do better.

New Bedford Textile's golf team found the going tough, in spite of a 
veteran team. The Maroon and Gray dropped its opener to New Bedford High. 
6-3, but managed to gain a tie with Becker College of Worcester in a well-played 
match. Tech lost a pair of decisions to Lowell Tech and Becker before earning 
its first win of the season, a whitewash against Vocational. 

New Bedford High again took Textile's measure, 5-4, the outcome being 
undecided until the last hole of the match, but Voke failed to break Tech's fairway 
jinx and lost 7-2. The local Textile outfit bowed out with a hard-luck loss to the 
Weavers from Lowell Textile, 5-4. 

Ralph Hawes did yeoman work for a losing cause all season, while on 
various occasions Barter and Ziemba came up with sterling performances. Hawes, 
Barter, and Sagar will be the bulwark of next season's golf team.

Under the tutelage of a new coach, 
one Charlie O'Keefe, Tech w r as slow 
in getting started this season. Once 
on the winning path, however, the 
boys proved a hard nut to crack, as 
several outstanding rivals will attest. 
B ridge water had the scare of its life 
when the boys from New Bedford 
rallied from an apparently hopeless 
cause to take a lead late in the opener, 
only to lose it again to a gallant home 
guard. The final score read, 37-36. 

After Captain Kuwaski left the 
game with a broken nose, Lowell 
found New Bedford easy picking to 
go on to win, 48-31. The score was 
21-20 in favor of Lowell when Bernie 
retired from the game. 



54 }>°- 



New Bedford Textile 



Howard Mills dropped in a layup 
shot with 20 seconds to play, and Hy- 
annis won from Textile. 32-31. Vo- 
cational also had to come from behind 
to win, 39-29, in a game which found 
the losers ahead 14-1 at the quarter. 

Tech's first win of the season was 
registered against Newport's Torpedo 
Apprentices, 42-31, with Kuwaski 
tossing in 18 points. The win streak 
was short-lived as Becker took the 
New Bedford team's measure, 69-35, 
its annual shellacking. Ed Flynn hit 
for 24 points. 

Bernie Kuwaski put on an exhibi- 
tion of shooting before a Fall River 
audience and Tech walked away with 
a 55-33 win over Durfee Tech. The 
New Bedford captain's 28 points were 
tops for the year in Textile's scoring 
department. In a practice tilt. Tech's 
Bad Boys drubbed a supposedly good 
City league team 49-11, but against 
Hyannis the following week, the boys 
were woefully weak, losing to a super- 
ior team, 48-34. 

St. Anselm's Freshmen were the 
best of Textile's opponents this year. 
Hampered by a strange floor, they 
trailed 21-20 at the half, but ripped 
the strings with 24 points in the third 
frame, winning 56-34. 

Gene Mogilnicki hit his stride with 
18 points against Durfee Textile and 
the locals won 50-21. Tech also came 
through with a surprise win over an 
heretofore undefeated Providence Col- 
lege Frosh, 33-25, although the Friars 
had bad luck on their shots. Kuwaski 
and Mogilnicki scored 26 points be- 
tween them. 



They're still talking about the Tex- 
tile-Bridgewater fracas, which wound 
up in a mild riot. After hostilities 
were settled, the Bridgewater coach re- 
fused to continue the game and New 
Bedford was declared the winner by 
forfeit. We're sorry to see games end 
this way, especially with such good 
sportsmen as the Bridgewater boys. 

Tech evened its series with Voke 
with a 34-28 win. Mogilnicki and 
Kuwaski led the parade with 22 points 
between them. 

Ed Flynn and Company were given 
a scare and Becker was fortunate to 
eke out a 37-30 win over the Maroon 
and Gray in the best played game of 
the season. Chief reason for the New 
Bedford showing was Andy Goodwin's 
guarding of Flynn. who only hit for 
three fields. Goodwin and Hilditch 
scored 14 points between them. 

Tech drove to Newport and back in 
a blinding snowstorm, only to be 
handed a 36-24 setback at the hands 
of an under-rated Apprentice five. It 
was a poor ending for a season packed 
with hard fighting and spectacular 
playing. The opposition was tough 
and the competition keen, but the boys 
from New Bedford gave a good ac- 
count of themselves and have every 
reason to be proud of their record. 

Kuwaski had 149 points for a season 
total, while Mogilnicki was also over 
the century mark for his second year 
in a row with 121. These two for- 
wards owe much of their success to the 
fine teamwork of Goodwin, Hilditch, 
Hawes, and the rest of a fine squad.

New Bedford Textile was undefeat- 
ed in soccer this season for the first 
time in the history of the soccer team. 
Vocational was first victim, 3-2, with 
Sagar, Moniz, and Whewell scoring 
for the winners. Bob Whewell 's edu- 
cated toe gave Tech its second win at 
Bridgewater in a 1-0 shutout. Brown's 
J. V. outfit fell before the rush of Tex- 
tile's forward wall, 2-1 ; Mogilnicki 
and Moniz led the charge, each getting 
one goal. Durfee Tech proved to be 
only a stepping stone to New Bed- 
ford's success, succumbing 2-0 ; Gene 



Mogilnicki registered both scores with 
Win Sagar and Don Mellor getting 
them up. 

The weather man kept the boys idle 
for a week and the rest took its toll. 
The team could do no better than tie 
its last two tilts by identical 1-1 counts. 
Tech's tie with Voke, and its previous 
win over the same outfit, gave the lads 
the city title for the first time in six 
years. 

Captain Whewell, Hilditch, Frey, 
Sagar, and Ferdinand played their last 
game for the soccer team, but Coach 
Fred Beardsworth has excellent pros- 
pects for another successful season. 

The team was given a banquet at 
the end of the season, and the regulars 
were awarded chenille letters. At the 
banquet, Coach Beardsworth was pre- 
sented with a leather wallet from the 
squad as a token of their appreciation 
for his time and talent which he so 
freely gave.

THE MIRACLE OF 






THIRTY YEARS AGO,on December 19, 1910, 
a group of engineers and scientists gath- 
ered in a new, unusual plant at Marcus Hook, 
Pa. This was to be the first commercial pro- 
duction of a man-made textile fiber in the U. S. 

Finally, someone gave a signal. Machinery 
sprang to life. And from the equipment there 
began to issue slender filaments which were 
led through a chemical solution, then col- 
lected in the form of yarn. 

A new American textile industry was born! 

The progress of America's rayon industry 
in the thirty years that have passed since that 
first successful production in the Marcus 
Hook Plant of American Viscose Corpora- 
tion is now history. Rayon has marched 
steadily ahead as it has made possible new, 
more beautiful and more durable fabrics. To- 
day, it employs 49,000 American men and 



women, and annually produces more than 300 
million pounds of yarn. An outstanding ex- 
ample of American achievement. 

From the first, American Viscose Corpora- 
tion has figured prominently in every major 
development. It pioneered many vital ad- 
vances for cost reduction, price reduction, 
and quality improvement. It established the 
Crown Quality Control Plan to assure con- 
sumers the quality they want in rayon mer- 
chandise. It instituted the "Textile Unit," a 
full-sized textile research plant, in order to 
better serve the industry. 

American Viscose Corporation is proud of 
its 30-year record of achievement. And now, 
embarking on its fourth decade, it pledges 
continuance of the progressive policies which 
have stimulated the growth of the American 
rayon industry.

tion to know and understand practical tex- 
tile printing problems and how to meet 
them with rolls best adapted to give effi- 
cient, economical service. 

Textile print roll requirements are severe- 
ly exacting. The copper must be homo- 
geneous, free from imperfections, impuri- 
ties, hard spots, strata, blow holes. It must 
be evenly, precisely tempered, sufficiently 
ductile to be "picked up" by the engraver's 
tool, yet sufficiently hard to enable the 
edges of the engraving to stand, without 
becoming rounded or burred, through long 
service. 

The rolls must be perfectly concentric; 
they must be straight within close tolerance 
limits; they must be strong 
enough to drive a heavy 
printing cylinder by fric- 
tion; tough enough to with- 
stand repeated pushing on

PAUL REVERE 




and off mandrell; and must have the smooth- 
ness and texture required to prevent the 
edges of the engraving from being eroded 
by the "doctor" blades. 

The standard, most economical, roll is the 
solid wall copper roll. Rolls of this type 
can be repeatedly re-engraved, the old en- 
graving being turned off. An average size 
solid wall copper roll should permit at least 
25 such turn-offs, thus affording 26 new 
engraving surfaces during its life. 

Also available are cheaper rolls, "re-built" 
by drawing new copper tubes over cores 
consisting of old turned-down rolls. How- 
ever, these are more likely to cause trouble, 
and in the end are definitely more expensive 
than the solid wall rolls. 

Revere specialists with many years of ex- 
perience in this field are at your service to 
assist you in specifying and obtaining rolls 
best adapted to serve your individual re- 
quirements. Revere ability to render cap- 
able service of this kind is perhaps best 
attested by the fact that a large proportion 
of all textile print rolls in use throughout 
the United States today are of Revere make.

SINCE 1915, Calco has grown from a 
standing start to become one of the 
country's largest producers of dyestuffs, 
intermediates and related chemicals. In 
terms of size, our growth may be measured 
by our yearly consumption of the raw 
materials from which Calco dyes are made. 
Sulphur, for instance, is but one of many 
of these raw materials. We now use 30,- 
000,000 pounds of it a year. 

This progress takes on special significance 
as we pass our twenty-fifth anniversary. 
It is typical of the impressive development 
we have shared with the country's Chemi- 
cal Industry as a whole. And we are proud 
that Calco products contribute so substan- 
tially to the nation's self-sufficiency of vital 
materials — not only on the score of quan- 
tity, but on the basis of quality as well.
